the president of the united states needs mr. clinton to help him with that narrow sliver of undecided voters, especially women ages 30 to 50 who grew up with bill clinton as sort of their teenage or childhood president. that's important. the second thing is is that bill clinton and hillary clinton need barack obama. they need him to perform strongly and to do well, because if barack obama loses and loses on the scale of a carter, that is very bad for the democratic brand for years to come and that is not helpful to a, perhaps, nominee or presidential candidate hillary clinton. so on many levels, this is -- they are living vicariously off each other and through each other, and as i said to a buddy of mine back stage a minute ago, clearly they are carrying each other's bags now and that's probably not a bad thing for today's politics. >> one of the interesting tidbits in this new yorker story looks at the -- pardon me. one of the interesting tidbits, sorry, i was hearing something in my ear there. one of the interesting tidbits looks at clinton's strategic advice to barack obama. look, you att

at the arizona/mexico border saying welcome all illegals to your united states, our home is your home. megyn: well, what a shift in this federal investigation into sheriff joe arpaio. the feds have now closed their criminal investigation of america's so-called toughest sheriff. the feds releasing that news late on the friday just before the labor day weekend. sheriff arpaio had maintained all along that the lawsuit had no merit, the investigation, i should say. he was accused of abuse of power, mostly for misusing county credit cards, they said, and for allegedly misspending tax money approved for jail-related expenses. this announcement will mark the end of a four-year investigation that technically began under the bush administration, but sheriff joe has maintained that it ramped up under president obama, and he believed it was political. there are still civil suits filed by another group, a group of latinos, against sheriff around pie -- arpaio's office for alleged racial profiling. now the feds have ended their criminal investigation of this man. >>> fox newswet alert for you, president
